*Drum roll* On Friday @NtlMuseumsScot #ArtWonderland at #rbsmuseumlates we will be premiering a brand new animation from Cameron Duguid!

So, we can't reveal Cameron's Alice in Wonderland inspired animation JUST yet, but here's a sample of his work and a wee bitty about the chap behind the animation.

Cameron Duguid is an Edinburgh based animator, whose work The Red Door Gallery have been enamoured with for quite some time!  His degree film TYPE was winner of The Royal Television Society- Best Student Animation Award in 2001.  Since graduating from Edinburgh Colledge of Art, he has worked on a diverse range of films which have repedadly caught our eye - including an award winning BBC4 documentary about quantum theory and Oliver Sacks: Tales of Music and the Brain which was part of the Imagine series.
More recently he has created a series of music videos, including FOUND's Johnny, I Can't Walk the Line.  This Edinburgh based band also played at the first RBS Museum Lates event last year.

Cameron's individual style of traditional animation techniques results in novel and interesting ways to illustrate complex ideas. Blending a mixture of hands on techniques including paper cutting, 3d models, multiplane and, a first for this piece- a little bit of marquetry. 
If your lucky enough to have a ticket for the RBS Museum Lates event on Friday, head to The Animal World Exhibit (Level 1) between 19.00 and 20.30 to hear Corner Sound present Curios - their layered live analogue and digital sounds which will create a spontaneous soundscape to Cameron's silent animation - and meet Cameron himself, hope to see you there!
